ODOT Prepares for Beltline Ramp Closures

EUGENE, Ore. — Beltline users should beware of some upcoming closures.

Starting at 8 p.m. Thursday, the on-ramp from southbound Delta Highway and Green Acres Road to Beltline westbound will be closed until 6 a.m.

On the Friday, the on-ramp from River Road to Beltline eastbound will be closed from midnight to 6 a.m.

Crews will pave the ramps in preparation for some new ramp meters.

“We’re putting in about four of these adaptive ramp meters essentially to help reduce traffic delays and improve safety and to decrease fuel consumption during the peak morning and afternoon travel times,” said Lou Torres, ODOT spokesperson.

The project has been under construction since January and is expected to be done and operational in July.
